your modeling has been fairly successful.

Our payroll record shows that

including what you've received today,

you have an income,

and please, report it

to the Internal Revenue Department,

of nearly $9,000 this year.

Well, you ask Larry.

He says my pictures are

getting hard to sell.

Yes, my dear.

I tend to agree with that.

Uh, I think Sandra is right, Mr. Lang.

We ought to let her get out.

Well, well!

I didn't know we had

a personal interest in this.

Sandra, my dear,

we've, uh, talked about this

many times before,

and, uh, this time,

I think you've made your point.

You mean I can get out?

Uh, as a model, yes.

But you wouldn't wanna give up

all of this nice money, would you?

Harmon, say hello

to our new recruiting agent.

Yes, Sandra, my dear.

Your new job will be to find us

new, fresh talent.

Ajax will help you.

Ajax has an eye for beauty.

An eye isn't all he has. I want out.

Let me finish, please.

You'll be paid well for your new work.

Our salesmen have been promised

a continuous flow of product.

So, if you're unable

to find us new, fresh talent,

you'll have to do the modeling yourself.

During the recruitment period,

it might prove helpful

if you pose with the new girl.

Sort of get her over her

initial embarrassment.

But understand this.

If you don't secure us

the new, fresh talent,

we're going to have to have

a broader variety of poses

if you're to do the modeling yourself.

I'll bring her up,

but you're gonna have to sell her.

I can't do any more. She's a sweet kid.

Yeah, yeah. She may be,

but, uh, Ajax told Lang, and Lang told me,

and I'm telling you.

This is the girl we want.

Now I just do my job, you do yours.

And remember this,

this is one way to keep Ajax away from you.

Kim, this is Harmon.

- Hello.

Herschell Gordon Lewis

Herschell Gordon Lewis (June 15, 1926 – September 26, 2016) was an American filmmaker, best known for creating the "splatter" subgenre of horror films. He is often called the "Godfather of Gore" (a title also given to Lucio Fulci), though his film career included works in a range of exploitation film genres including juvenile delinquent films, nudie-cuties, two children's films and at least one rural comedy. On Lewis' career, AllMovie wrote: "With his better-known gore films, Herschell Gordon Lewis was a pioneer, going farther than anyone else dared, probing the depths of disgust and discomfort onscreen with more bad taste and imagination than anyone of his era." more…
